Q: Do I really need a die cut/embossing machine?
A: While it’s not absolutely necessary, it is a very handy tool to have especially if you want to create your own embellishments, focal points, etc. It is, also, helpful to do embossing with as it takes out a lot of the work. It’s one tool I highly recommend.
Q: Do you have any suggestions for placing flowers on my projects?
A: One key idea to keep in mind when putting flowers on a project is to use only odd numbers of them. This helps to balance the entire look. Fill in open areas with other items such as leaves or vines. Don’t be afraid to play around with the look before placing it on your project.
Q: Can I stamp and emboss on wood? What ink would I use?
Q: When I do embossing on vellum it’s hard to see. What can I do to make it show?
Q: Some of my embossing folders tear the paper. How can I stop that?
A: Lightly mist the paper with water using a mister bottle before running it through. You can, also, add a piece of vellum or a piece of printer paper in the embossing folder on each side of the paper you want to emboss. Wax paper also works well placed inside the folder surrounding the paper.
